TROUBLESHOOTING

FAQs

What types of cookware are recommended for use with the cooktop?

• Look for cookware that is marked "induction ready" or "induction capable" or that is specifically designed for induction cooking.

• The cookware must have a magnetic metallic base.

See the Induction Cookware Types section.

• The pans must have a flat bottom and straight sides.

• Only use heavy-gauge pans.

• The pan size must match the amount of food to be prepared and the size of the surface element.

• Use tight fitting lids.

• Only use flat-bottom woks.

TROUBLESHOOTING 49

During convection cooking the fan stops when I open the door. Is that normal?

Yes, this is normal. When the door is opened, the convection fan will stop until the door is closed.

Can I use aluminum foil to catch drippings in my oven cavity?

Never use aluminum foil to line the bottom or sides of the oven or the warming drawer. The foil will melt and stick to the bottom surface of the oven and will not be removable. Use a sheet pan placed on a lower oven rack to catch drippings instead. (If foil has already melted onto the bottom of the oven, it will not interfere with the oven's performance.)

Why do the heating elements appear to be turning

ON and OFF during use of the cooktop or oven?

Depending on your cooktop element setting or the temperature selected in your oven it is NORMAL for the cooking elements to cycle on and off.

Can I use aluminum foil on the racks?

Do not cover racks with aluminum foil. Covering entire racks with foil restricts air flow, leading to poor cooking results. Use a sheet pan lined with foil under fruit pies or other acidic or sugary foods to prevent spillovers from damaging the oven finish.

CAUTION

Foil may be used to wrap food in the oven or warming drawer, but do not allow the foil to come into contact with the exposed heating/broiling elements in the oven. The foil could melt or ignite, causing smoke, fire, or injury.

My new oven doesn’t cook like my old one. Is there something wrong with the temperature settings?

No, your oven has been factory tested and calibrated.

For the first few uses, follow your recipe times and temperatures carefully. If you still think your new oven is too hot or too cold, you can adjust the oven temperature yourself to meet your specific cooking needs. Refer to the Oven Temperature Adjustment section in this manual for easy instructions on how to adjust your thermostat.

Is it normal to hear a clicking noise coming from the back of my oven when I am using it?

Your new range is designed to maintain a tighter control over your oven’s temperature. You may hear your oven’s heating elements click on and off more frequently on your new oven. This is NORMAL.

Can I leave my racks in the oven when running a

Self Clean cycle?

No. Although it will not damage the racks, it will discolor them and may make them hard to slide in and out during use. Remove all items from the oven before starting a Self Clean cycle.

What should I do if my racks are sticky and have become hard to slide in and out?

Over time, the racks may become hard to slide in and out. Apply a small amount of olive oil to the ends of the racks. This will work as a lubricant for easier gliding.

Why is the colon in the clock flashing?

This means that the product has just been plugged in, or that it has experienced a power interruption. To clear the flashing colon in the clock, press any key or reset the clock if needed.

What should I do for hard to remove stains on my cooktop?

The cooktop should be cleaned after every use to prevent permanent staining. When cooking foods with high sugar content, such as tomato sauce, clean the stain off with a scraper while the cooktop is still warm.

Use an oven mitt when scraping to prevent burns.

Refer to the MAINTENANCE section of this owner's manual for further instruction.

50 TROUBLESHOOTING

Why aren't the function buttons working?

Make sure that the range is not in Lockout mode. The lock will show in the display if Lockout is activated.

To deactivate Lockout, pressing Probe or Clock for three seconds. The unlock melody sounds and Loc appears in the display until the controls are unlocked.

Is it safe for my convection fan, broil burner or heater element to get wet during EasyClean ® ?

Yes. The convection fan, broiler burner or heater element may get a little wet during cleaning. However, direct spray onto the broil burner and heater elements is not necessary because these are self-cleaning during regular use.

My range is still dirty after running the

EasyClean ® cycle. What else should I do?

The EasyClean ® cycle only helps to loosen light soils in your oven range to assist in hand-cleaning of your oven. It does not automatically remove all soils after the cycle. Some scrubbing of your oven range is required after running the EasyClean ® cycle.

Do I need to use all 1 ¼ cups (10 oz or 300 ml) of water for EasyClean ® ?

Yes. It is highly recommended that 1 cup (8 oz or

250 ml) of water be sprayed or poured on the bottom and an additional ¼ cup (2 oz or 60 ml) of water be sprayed on walls and other soiled areas to fully saturate the soils for better cleaning performance.

I tried scrubbing my oven after running

EasyClean ® , but some soils still remain. What can

I do?

The EasyClean ® feature works best when the soils are fully soaked and submerged in water before running the cycle and during hand-cleaning. If soils are not sufficiently soaked in water, it can negatively affect the cleaning performance. Repeat the

EasyClean ® process using sufficient water.

Sugar-based and certain greasy soils are especially hard to clean. If some stubborn soils remain, use the

Self Clean feature to thoroughly clean your oven.

Soils on my oven walls are not coming off. How can I get my walls clean?

Soils on the side and rear walls of your oven range may be more difficult to fully soak with water. Try repeating the EasyClean ® process with more than the ¼ cup (2 oz or 60 ml) spray recommended.

I see smoke coming out of my oven range’s cooktop vents during EasyClean ® . Is this normal?

This is normal. This is not smoke. It is actually water vapor (steam) from the water in the oven cavity. As the oven heats briefly during EasyClean ® , the water in the cavity evaporates and escapes through the oven vents.

How often should I use EasyClean ® ?

EasyClean ® can be performed as often as you wish.

EasyClean ® works best when your oven is LIGHTLY soiled from such things as LIGHT grease splatter and small drops of cheese. Please refer to the

EasyClean ® section in your owner's manual for more information.

Will EasyClean completely?

® get all of the soils and stains out

It depends on the soil type. Sugar-based and certain grease stains are especially hard to clean. Also, if stains are not sufficiently soaked in water, this can negatively affect cleaning performance. If stubborn or built-up stains remain, use the Self Clean feature.

Refer to the Self Clean section of your owner's manual.

What is required for EasyClean ® ?

A spray bottle filled with 1¼ cups (10 oz or 300 ml) of water, a plastic scraper, a non-scratch scrubbing pad and a towel. You should not use abrasive scrubbers such as heavy-duty scouring pads or steel wool.

Except for a towel, all of the materials you need are included in a special cleaning kit with your new range.

Are there any tricks to getting some of the stubborn soils out?

Scraping the soils with a plastic scraper before and during hand-cleaning is recommended. Fully saturating soils with water is also recommended.

However, certain types of soils are harder to clean than others. For these stubborn soils, the Self Clean cycle is recommended. Consult the Self Clean section of your owner's manual for details.
